Capita plc (Capita) today announces that Paul Pindar will retire from Capita
and step down as Chief Executive and from the Group Board with effect from 28

Paul is leaving Capita to establish a portfolio of private equity

Capita to help small and medium sized organisations reach the next stage of
their growth.

Chief Executive from 1 March 2014. To ensure a seamless transition, Andy will
step down from his role as Joint COO from 1 January 2014, allowing him to fully
focus on his role as Deputy Chief Executive. Dawn Marriott-Sims, currently
Executive Director of Capita's Workplace Services division, will be appointed
to the Group Board and succeed Andy as Joint COO with effect from 1 January

Paul Pindar, Chief Executive, said:

"I have been enormously privileged to lead the team at Capita. The Group's
growth and success is due to the commitment and team work of the Group Board,
the senior management team and all my colleagues across Capita. After 26 years
with the Company and approaching my 50th results presentation, I believe that
now is the right time to hand the reins over to Andy. I will be leaving Capita
with a strong management team and in excellent financial and operational shape
for further success in 2014 and beyond. Andy will bring a wealth of experience
to his new role as Chief Executive and I wish him and the whole Capita team all
the very best in taking the Company forward."

Andy Parker, Deputy Chief Executive and Joint COO, said:

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead Capita through the next stage
of its growth and development. Paul has established an exceptional team and
track record and I look forward to working with the Board and all my colleagues
to build on this going forward. I would like to thank Paul personally for his
invaluable guidance and support, particularly over the last 6 months in my role
as Deputy Chief Executive. I would also like to congratulate Dawn on her
appointment to the Board and look forward to the undoubted energy and
operational experience that she will bring to the team."

Martin Bolland, Chairman, said:

"Paul has made an enormous contribution throughout his career at Capita. He has
been instrumental in smoothly guiding the Company through its exceptional
growth and performance, delivering an unbroken track record of year-on-year
earnings growth. He has inspired the best in his team with his indomitable
leadership and unwavering sense of fun and good humour. Our robust succession
planning has ensured that there is a strong team in place to continue
delivering success. On behalf of the Board and the wider Group, I welcome Andy
and Dawn to their new roles and extend warmest thanks to Paul for his
